Welcome to Dubai!
On behalf of the Organizing Committee, I'm delighted to invite you to the 7th ISN-EMAN Update in Nephrology, due to be held in Dubai from 13 – 16 December 2017.
We are proud to continue our strategic partnership with The International Society of Nephrology (ISN) which aspires towards the elimination of kidney disease worldwide and is dedicated to advancing the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of kidney diseases in the developing and the developed world.
We also feel great honour to inform you that this year, The International Society of Peritoneal Dialysis (ISPD), the International Society of Haemodialysis (ISHD) and Kidney Disease: Improving Global Outcomes (KDIGO) will join forces with us to lead a highly educative congress. Their collaboration truly makes this meeting an international event and one that is not to be missed.
With the aim of reviewing recent advances in major areas of Nephrology, we have brought together an outstanding array of international and regional speakers who are clinicians as well as teachers. They are the pioneers in their practices and have contributed significantly to advancements in their respective fields.
The program will focus on Clinical Nephrology, Dialysis and Transplantation and feature educational pre-conference courses on Peritoneal Dialysis & Interventional Nephrology. In addition we will host the 3nd ISN Program workshop for this Region.
We feel great pride in welcoming you to Dubai, the true cosmopolitan city of the world, where you will enjoy the timeless tranquillity of the desert and the hustle and bustle of a city which has the best state-of-the art infrastructure facilities.
We are confident that this conference will exceed your expectations, offering an exciting scientific event as well as an enjoyable social and cultural experience.
We look forward to meeting you all in Dubai in December 2017, to what promises to be one of the best international scientific gathering in the region.
